STICKNEY, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A Stickney Township man was ordered held on $500,000 bond Thursday for allegedly physically and sexually assault a woman he knew this month, authorities said.

Giovanni Casterjon, 22, was charged with one count of aggravated criminal sexual assault and one count of aggravated domestic battery, according to a release from Cook County Sheriff's police. On Thursday, he was ordered held on $500,000 bond.

On March 15, Casterjon allegedly forced the woman into his car and then drove to his home in the 7000 block of West 71st Street in Stickeny Township, police said. After parking near his home, he allegedly punched her in the head, bit her arm and jammed his thumb into one of her eye sockets.

Casterjon took her cell phone and shoes, then forced her inside the house, police said. He continued to beat and strangle her, then forcing her to perform sexual acts.

Casterjon forced her to stay in the home for two days until her bruises went down, police said. After two days, she convinced Casterjon to return her phone and shoes. While he was out of the house, she called a friend to pick her up and then reported Casterjon to Bridgeview police.

Chicago Police took him into custody March 19 during a traffic stop while he was driving the victim's stolen car.

His next court date is scheduled for April 15.
